Beginners like me always wonder how to find accurate chords to a piece of music. Here is what I have understood in last few months of my journey: Try to find the key of the song. Get the notes/tabs. Sing and listen to the song quite a few times to find out the accented/strong bits. Then try to fit a chord (with a basic assumption about the scale of the song) progression accordingly. This forum really amazes me in both it's quality content and active participation from the members. I would request all you folks to contribute in this thread to help us, the mere beginners. A nice approach probably would be to take a few examples where the tabs are already known and the songs are known as well. Then starting from the notes and accented bits and coming up with the best chord progression. Another request is to keep the barre and complicated chords a minimum, so that the basic essence is not lost, but it's easy to follow as well.
